Prince's Dock Footbridge - Liverpool, UK

The "Happy Pontist" blog describes the bridge well as, "a very unusual, assymetrical design, comprising a steel wishbone arch spanning 30m, supported at one end on curved rib members, T-shaped in cross-section, with a bowstring tie hidden behind perforated cladding panels. The ribs also support the bridge deck."  The bridge bears a striking resemblance to the ribcage of a whale.
